A Team won a Football Game, which is Obviously part of a Devious Plot for Democrats to Retain Power via a Taylor Swift Endorsement of Joe Biden.

 by Rod Williams, Jan. 30, 2024 - It is not only that many Trump Republicans have pro-authoritarian sentiments and have a cult like loyalty to Donald Trump, but many of them will also believe the weirdest of things. Maybe it is not the average everyday Trump supporter who accepts QAnon stuff or Alex Jones's interpretation of events or the Pizzagate theory, but many of them do. They elect people like Marjorie Taylor Green who spouts all sorts of weird stuff like the Jewish lasers that caused the California wildfires, and they made Tucker Carlson the leading pundit in America, and he promotes some crazy stuff.  

Of course, this ability of Republicans to believe crazy stuff did not start in the Trump era. Back about 2012 Republicans went nuts with fear of something called "Agenda 21", which was nothing more than meaningless United Nations study. Agenda 21 didn't amount to much. It was not a policy or a law. It was just a fanciful set of proposed policies to save the world from global warming.  If enacted it could have been devastating to the world economy, but there was no way that was going to happen.  However, Agenda 21 became this big thing to be feared and everything from shady sidewalks to reintroducing wolves into the wild was seen as a part of this big plan to kill 97% of the world's population by poisoning them with aspartame and Floride. 

Of course, back in the 50's and 60's The John Birch Society controlled many Republican County parties across the country. The JBS had this big conspiracy that "the insiders" had been manipulating things for about 200 years and both Communism and Nazism was just something the insiders allowed to happen. Many never did know the full conspiracy theory and just thought the JBS was a group of patriotic, anti-communist conservatives. What was well known is that the JBS was quick to call anyone not on the same page as they a communist. And, almost any disaster of foreign policy blunder was suspected of being planned, not just something that happened. 

Trump era weirdness is so common that much of it goes unnoticed. Philip Bump writing in the Washington Post today reports on a new right wing conspiracy theory that will make your head explode. Here it is. The Kansas City Chiefs are being ushered to the Super Bowl, somehow by George Soros fixing the game so that somehow that will secure Swift’s endorsement for President Biden.

I know. It will make your head explode. It doesn't make sense. I can't explain it.  I don't watch much "conservative" media these days. Very little Fox, no Newsweek, or OAN and I don't follow a lot of Trumpinista's on X or other social media, so I miss a lot, but apparently this theory is making the rounds. I am over being shocked. All I can do is shake my head.
